The Sounds of Nature Collection

by Gaia



A massive collection of natural sounds: thunderstorms, rain-showers, ocean waves, rivers and streams, songbirds in the morning, swampland at sunset, etc.

The ultimate collection of environmental sounds for people who wish to hear something else other than the less-than-soothing sounds of bus horns, squealing tires, roaring engines, obnoxiously loud stereos, construction jackhammers, etc.

Note: Cricket sounds can be used in response to any political candidate's election oratory.

Subject: Very soothing to the soul
These recordings are very high quality. I listen to them when I'm stuck indoors working at my computer. Thank you so much for sharing these with us.

Wat a classic collection..just ultimate.No words.Listening to these natural sounds are priceless.
Reviewer: Phil- - - August 2, 2014
Subject: Varied and high quality
I listen to these recordings in the background to de-stress while doing other things. There's an excellent variety in the subjects (rain, running water, animals, etc.), and you can find both loud and soft sounds, whatever you're in the mood for. Highly recommended.

Subject: I play them everywhere!
I live in rural Alaska, surrounded by nature, and I love this collection every bit as much as anyone else.

At work and at home I enjoy birdsong as the background music in my life. When I'm homesick for South Dakota I will fall asleep to crickets or a lovely thunderstorm, neither of which exist where I live. I even play them on my phone when having a massage. It's a lovely companion to the spa music.

Thanks so much for this collection!! It's so difficult to find nature's own music that hasn't had something man-made recorded with it. This is a wonderful organic collection.

Subject: Using the Audios
Collection is really excellent. I am into making Subliminal and bineurals. My request to the Author is that can I use these Audios as background music?
Are they royalty free?

Appreciate your reply.
Regards

Subject: run time
this is a great collection of sounds but does anyone know why they only run for a couple of minutes and not for the full amount as advertised?
Reviewer: negativeions - - April 24, 2013
Subject: Nice Collection
Nice Collection. The only problem is that some of these are in 128kbps. Who in their right mind records at that quality in this day and age? 224 or better. Just do it. Even some of the VBR go too low sometimes. Come on guys, really?

Subject: Stress Free
When I want to relax and unwind, I listen to this excellent collection and never seem to get tired of it.
Reviewer: mrsfixit - - April 11, 2013
Subject: Fantastic collection
This is a phenomenal collection of water and wildlife sounds. Some of them are quite long. The quality is great, as is the variety.
I like to use Audacity (freeware) to mix the sounds and create long mp3's of nature sounds, which I play on my boombox when I'm outside (I live near a highway.:-()
This collection is worth it's weight in gold. It's better than the stuff you pay for. Thanks SO much for offering this to the public.
BTW- I had a good laugh when I read the description. It's nice to see someone has a sense of humor. :-)
